“The changes proposed represent an evolution of how we currently inspect schools. They build on the strengths of our current framework and consider the significant changes across education and wider society over the past six years.”​

Vanessa Ward, Chief Inspector-CEO at ISI

A new ISI Inspection framework is coming – are you ready?

Following a consultation, ISI will be introducing a new ISI inspection framework from September 2023. ISI intend to build on the strengths of the existing framework and develop it further, with a particular emphasis on the wellbeing of pupils. A renewed focus on leadership and management is evidenced by the intent to include a summary in the opening section.

You’ll hear from leading experts in independent school inspections, including Reporting inspectors and the Former Chief Inspector of ISI. You will have plenty of opportunity to put your questions to our speakers, with dedicated time for questions, a panel discussion and ample networking time.

Who should attend this conference on the new ISI Inspection framework?
